This in conversation event sees two historians Dr Imaobong Umoren, Assistant Professor in International History at the LSE and Dr Dawn-Marie Gibson, Senior Lecturer in American History at Royal Holloway University discuss the theme of gender history and biography. Dr Umoren is currently working on a biographical project relating to the first female Prime Minister in the Caribbean and LSE Alumna, Eugenia Charles. Dr Gibson is writing a biography of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. During the conversation, a range of issues will be discussed including the role of race, masculinity, femininity, faith, conservatism, and transnationalism. After the talk, a question and answer session will occur.

Admission is on a first-come-first-served basis for those with tickets. Not everyone who books uses their ticket, so, to ensure a full house, we allocate more tickets than there are places. We also run returns queues at the events and fill any empty seats with those waiting outside the theatre shortly before the start of the event. This usually means we have a full house without having to turn people away, but there may be occasions when we do have more people than seats available. Please ensure you arrive at least 15 minutes before the start time to avoid disappointment. Please note, tickets are not transferable- if you can't make it, and this means an empty place, then this would be allocated to someone waiting in the returns queue.

For most ticketed events some people from the returns queue do get in, but there is no guarantee of entry and the numbers vary from event to event. We always try to keep the returns queue updated on chances of getting in as it nears the start of the event.
